If you’ve ever tried to cut a steak with a butter knife or use a flathead screwdriver when a task clearly calls for a Philips-head, you intuitively understand the importance of form and function relationships. As a forensic biomechanist, Dr. Jeremy Lomax has spent his career studying the complex relationship between biological organisms’ forms and functions, from fish anatomy and behavior to understanding and preventing human injuries. We joined Dr. Lomax in conversation around how studying the form-function relationship shapes our understanding of movement, injury prevention, and product design.

Join us for a virtual tour of the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden’s Darnall W. and Susan F. Boyd Aquarium & Reptile Conservation Center (ARCC), hosted by Lochlan Wooten, Chief Operating Officer and Christie Vondrak, Chief Administrative Officer. An extensive renovation of a 30-year-old building, ARCC is now home to Riverbanks Zoo and Garden’s most diverse population of animals. Terrestrial and aquatic conservation labs, a jellyfish wall, an octopus tank, and climate zones including deserts, tropics, and South Carolina temperate forests create a multi-sensory, immersive journey through biomes of the world. By highlighting species of critical local and global conservation importance, ARCC tells a compelling story that inspires guests to join Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in taking action to save wild animals and wild places.
Protecting the planet’s biodiversity is central to the mission of zoos & aquariums, and our profession is uniquely poised for impact through strategic, coordinated action. Awareness and understanding of the most urgent needs, changing political landscapes, and innovations in ex-situ and in situ strategies are critical to progress towards healthier ecosystems. We joined Dr. Kira Mileham, Ph.D., Director of IUCN SSC Strategic Partnerships, in a conversation on the most pressing issues facing global conservation today.
